Helen Marshall can’t believe Ricardo’s outrageous proposal, or that she’s considering it, but she must help clear her parents’ debts or her family faces financial ruin. The small print on the marriage contract states they’ll be husband and wife for three months in every way—including in the bedroom. But there’s nothing in the contract about falling in love, or what they do when the three months is up and they want to negotiate a clause binding them forever.
What she doesn’t anticipate is finding “Jack” along the way. A simple handyman, he makes her laugh and sigh with pleasure. He makes her forget her goals. But with his meager lifestyle, Jack cannot be in her future.
